Elvis & Kresse Bill-Fold Wallet from One Good Thing – Dh365  

From heroic firefighters to your own everyday hero, this sleek wallet is made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose.

Fire-hose briefcase and wallet

Previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years fighting fires around the UK, the hose material softens with use but doesn’t lose its strength. The wallet is lined with reclaimed military grade parachute silk, making this a fully upcycled and sustainable present. For an even more generous gift the fire-hose briefcase has plenty of room to carry around a 14″ laptop and all its wires and can be carried around in the hand or with the detachable shoulder strap (Dh1,240).
